Analyze Risk from Exposure to Various Entities, Industries and Regions

The Business Entity Service employs our vast reference data on more than 10 million financial instruments coupled with our delivery and support capabilities to provide comprehensive business entity information alongside security-level reference data. The service uses industry standard security identifiers (CUSIP®, SEDOL®, and ISIN) and covers U.S. and international equities and bonds, including corporate, government, agency, municipal, and structured securities.

The Business Entity Service supplies robust entity-level data to help you perform the following vital business functions:

  • Calculate risk through exposure to a particular entity, industry or region
  • Create a clearer picture of the corporate hierarchy of an entity in order to understand the entity’s capital structure and perform analysis
  • Identify risks associated with corporate events within the family tree of an entity
  • Conduct pre- and post-trade analysis to help ensure compliance with internal and/or imposed restrictions on exposure to an entity, industry or region
  • Aid in determinations and disclosures regarding “affiliated persons” as defined under the Investment Company Act of 1940
  • Assist with efforts under other regulatory and compliance mandates including BASEL II, UCITS III, EU Third Money Laundering Directive, MiFID, and the USA PATRIOT Act.

The Business Entity Service is the result of a strategic alliance with Dun & Bradstreet, which enables us to leverage our broad reference data history with Dun & Bradstreet’s Enterprise Risk Solution. The service offers information at the issuer, parent and ultimate parent levels for business entities that have issued U.S. or international equities or bonds, including:
